Horrible Experience – I was really looking forward to this place but our whole group walked out before receiving our food (1st time I have ever done this) b/c the manager (who was also bartending) was rude, inappropriate, egotistical, and absolutely ruined our evening. We were disgusted with how he spoke to us. The restaurant will not last long with him there. Simply appalling. Do not go there!
Thankfully our evening was salvaged by enjoying ourselves at Bravo Bistro - a wonderful friendly place. We had a blast there.
?Bada Boo!? or ?Bada Doom? We'll ignore you better than your teenage daughter. – Half the party was already seated at the table when I and another friend walked in at 8:30. The waiter was there taking drink orders when we walked in. Drinks showed up around 9. Food orders were taken around 9:15. I asked the waiter what the soup of the day was and he said that they were out of pizza. I was going to order pizza. I had to ask him a second time what the soup was. He then finallyinformed me that there was no soup. 5 rolls were brought out for 11 people. ROLLS at an Italian restaurant?? So everyone did not get bread. We asked for more and then we were brought what now looked like 30 rolls 10 minutes later. As we were waiting for our food, I could see the food prep area where a man was preparing dough for pizza! I though they were OUT of pizza. Food came out around 9:30 . Some people got their food. One person did not have their food prepared as requested. My food was brought to me. The server called it ?tricolor tortellini?. I recall ordering ?tortellini di mari? That was the exact name on the menu. I was hoping that my food would be out when I returned. It did not. We later asked the manager to remove it from the bill along with the other mess ups that night. He argued with me that my food was brought out twice and that I would not take it. If youcallitsomethingonthemenuthen you must call it that same name when you bring out to the customer. Since we asked that my food be removed from the bill the manager left. He never came back. Instead, he was standing out from watching a charity performance on the patio. WTF!! We were left at the table trying to decide if we pay for the bill or ditch.Theyneed to re-think theirability toaccommodate alarge charity event and general diners. It appears that they cannot juggle morethan 2 pins at one time. A staff member said that it was not good since they were missing a bartender, out of pizza out of soup, and short on staff. the menu was very limited and the food was bland.
Very inviting atmosphere, great service! – I went to Bada Boom one day for lunch. I heard from a friend that they re-opened under new ownership a few weeks ago, so I was anxious to see how the food was.
It?s in a great location. I decided to sit at a table on the patio. The atmosphere was very inviting, and I was almost immediately greeted by my waiter. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. I decided to order the Chopped Italian Salad and I added some grilled chicken on it.
While I waited for my lunch to arrive, I noticed the music that was playing on the patio. It was relaxing, but still upbeat. My salad arrived and it was delicious. It was tossed in a Red Wine Vinaigrette dressing, not too much and not too little. The chicken was wonderful too.
My waiter came back to see how everything tasted, told him it was great, and I asked for the check.
I plan on going back to Bada Boom very soon! The food was delicious, the portions were just the right size, service was prompt, and it was reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone!
Avoid the night before a big event – I went with a group of 5 to carbo load before the rock 'n roll marathon. The pizza was excellent, but it took a long time to get drinks, and our water was never refilled. I noticed many other tables on the patio getting irritated with the long wait (30 minutes or more) for their food. Would like to hear someone's experience on a non-busy night. I would have also appreciated a "thank you for your patience" from the manager. A small gesture makes a big difference.
Yum! – This place has great food and a fun atmosphere! Sitting outside of Bada Boom on a Sunday afternoon is great after a night out!
Good food, good price, good setting – Bada Boom is a local, good-value restaurant nestled in the art district in Old Town Scottsdale.
Can't beat it – Perfect place for a first date... and the food is sooooooooooooooooooo good. The wine list is pretty extensive, so it's a great way to start an evening. The patio is great...
